The Relationships beyond Images Conference – Day Three at Triennale Milano: Videos of Luca Vitone
Triennale Milano hosts the third appointment of “The Relationships beyond Images” (Le Relazioni oltre le Immagini) program, a series of conferences exploring the current trends in public art and analyzing their relation with contemporary social space. This series is part of the “ArtLine Milano” public program, a City of Milan public art project based in the CityLife Park.
How can the artwork interact with public space, while remaining an unexpected and distinct element? How can the alliance between art and architecture change our perception of the territory?
The aim of this conference day is to examine, through the analysis of historical and contemporary case studies, the function of site-specific sculptural interventions in the urban landscape – both in the design phase and in the fruition people might make of it daily – also considering these interventions’ potential cultural and social effects, and economic impact on the territory.
Speakers: Kasper König, artistic director of “Skulptur Projekte Münster”; Akiko Miki, international artistic director of “Benesse Art Site di Naoshima”; Piero Gilardi, artist and theorist, political activist and youth culture leader; Lorenza Baroncelli, urbanist, researcher and artistic director of Triennale Milano; Alterazioni Video, artistic collective; Luca Vitone, artist.
Moderators: Katia Anguelova, ArtLine production manager; Cecilia Guida, head of the ArtLine public program; Roberto Pinto, ArtLine coordinator.
